Re: Password Protect

Is this for Office or any file on your OS? If yes, then post to a group for Windows XP for better answers.

Re: Password Protect

As Milly suggested, you may want to post to a Windows newsgroup. However,
many of the Office applications have their own security built in. You can
use F1 to get help and type in "password" or "protect" to get more details
on the protection of files within each application.

Re: Password Protect

There is not password protection on Windows Files. It's a NTFS system, and
it's done using permissions of users.

Re: Password Protect

True; however, the Windows folks may have recommendations for a third party
protection utility for folders.
